Monarch Watch

University of Kansas, 2021 Constant Ave., Lawrence, KS 66047

Monarch Watch is a nonprofit education, conservation, and research program based at the University of Kansas that focuses on the monarch butterfly. Monarch Watch engages in research on monarch migration biology and population dynamics to better understand how to conserve the monarch migration. Because of a significant decline in monarch numbers in the last 25 years due to habitat loss, Monarch Watch works with nurseries to produce and ship regionally appropriate milkweeds, the host plants for monarchs. These plants are distributed to parties engaged in habitat restoration as well as schools and others wishing to create Monarch Waystations on private properties. Research indicates that it will require massive plantings of milkweeds and nectar plants to sustain the monarch migration. Monarch Watch urges all who can to support these efforts. The monarch migration is a unique part of our heritage and it is too valuable to lose.
